Puget Sound Swim Club

Port Orchard's Premier Youth Competitive Swim Club

What equipment does my swimmer need?

  • Practice suit – many swim stores sell discontinued or solid color suits for a reduced price on a rack called “practice suits”. Having a suit to use at practice rather than the team suit will prolong the life of your team suit. Always rinse suits in tap water after being in the pool to get rid of damaging chlorine.
  • Team suit (for meets) – plain black of any brand/style. It isn’t mandatory to get a team suit – plenty of kids don’t get them.
  • Goggles – These are a must for the comfort of your swimmer’s eyes. Buy a decent pair and write your swimmer’s name on them. An extra pair is a good idea.
  • Cap (silicone or latex) – PSSC Dragon cap
  • Optional items – A bag for carrying towels, fins, and a kickboard are great starting points.  As your swimmer advances, a snorkel and hand paddles are good ideas. At the beginning of the season, when the air temperature or the water temperature is still cool, sweatshirts and sweatpants are recommended. There are team sweatshirts, t-shirts, and a variety of other things available for purchase.
